Whereas, Orioles baseball is a Maryland tradition like Old Bay, crabs, and the Star Spangled Banner; and
Whereas, Orioles fans, from Western Maryland to the Eastern Shore, from Southern Maryland to Northeast, have black and orange fever and will support our high-flying Birds throughout their 2014 playoff run; and
Whereas, Buck’s Birds will be relentless and “We Won’t Stop” in our pursuit of a World Series championship.
NOW, THEREFORE, I, MARTIN O’MALLEY, GOVERNOR OF THE STATE OF MARYLAND, do hereby proclaim OCTOBER 2, 2014 as O’s ORANGE DAY in MARYLAND, and do commend this celebration and encourage all citizens to wear orange throughout the MLB playoffs.”
